Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is a two-day hands-on workshop on suicide first aid.
This workshop will take participants through the process of understanding and recognizing when someone may be having thoughts of suicide and work through a set of steps in creating a plan to support immediate safety.
- Recognize those who may be at risk for having suicidal thoughts
- Address how societal attitude affects our view on suicide and intervention
- Provide support and guidance to a person at risk to achieve individual safety needs
- Learn the key components to create an effective suicide safety plan
This two-day workshop will provide 16 hours of training in the form of group discussion, skills practice and presentations. Participants will be able to learn how to recognize individuals at risk of having suicidal thoughts and become comfortable addressing these thoughts through interactive practice sessions.
Participants will be given a workbook to follow throughout the day and will be awarded an ASIST certificate once training is complete.
